I just had to share this video. A physician captures beautiful views of the uterus, bowels, gall bladder and diaphragm during laparoscopic surgery. Notice the connections between the bladder and uterus. Also seen in this video are endometrial implants (when the lining of the womb grows outside of the uterus), varicose veins, and adenomyosis (endometrial tissue inside the muscle of the uterus).
The yellow sacs on the colon are epiploic appendages (fat filled sacs) that play a role
in cushioning the colon, immune response, and colonic absorption. …I think we may also be seeing the greater omentum, but I’m not positive.
During laparoscopy, they fill the belly with CO2 gas to lift the abdomen away from the internal organs so that they can get a better view. Normally everything is tightly packed.
I have so much gratitude to the woman who shared this educational video. Wishing her and her womb healing.
